Cammie Morgan is a second-generation Gallagher Girl, and by her sophomore year she's already fluent in 14 languages and capable of killing a man in seven different ways (one of which involves a piece of uncooked spaghetti). But the one thing the Gallagher Academy hasn't prepared her for is what to do when she falls for a boy who thinks she's an ordinary girl.
Sure, she can tap his phone, hack into his computer, and track him through town without his ever being the wiser - but can she have a relationship with a regular boy who can never know the truth about her?
Cammie may be an elite spy-in-training, but in her sophomore year, she's beginning her most dangerous mission - falling in love.

This is a great book for girls/teens! I listened to this before I gave my students the option to read the book. I liked the narrator's voices and what's best is that there isn't any inappropriate content in the book (which the exception of "hell" that was written once or twice). I would highly recommend this spectacular "spy" book!
This is the second series I have read/listened to by Ally Carter. I LOVED the Heist Society novels and the first in the Gallagher Girls series didn't dissapoint. The book is humorous and witty. Despite the fact the main character is a fifteen year old spy in training, she still deals with real teenage girl problems.
Ok, so this book wasn't good as Heist Society, but I am fast becoming an Ally Carter fan! The Gallagher Girls are just great fun. Not only did I relate to the boarding school misconceptions, I whole-heartedly enjoyed the homage paid to Alias and other spy genre greats. I wondered if the main characters in both series would be similar, but Carter crafts them uniquely despite the similarities in their secret-filled lives. I enjoyed the light-hearted humor that kept potentially intense scenes from being taken too seriously. Unlike Alias, this is no "Project Christmas" creating super-human spies. No matter what the girls' special skills, they are all still just high school girls with high school girl problems. See you in sub level 2.
The story was a little too focused on boys and romance for me; I wanted this to be a little more adventurous and a little deeper, but found instead that it was typical teen stuff, in a new setting.
I also found the narrator cloying... she worked hard to make her voice sound young, and while she settled in after a while, it didn't work for me. (The times when she portrayed adult characters, I found her voice much richer.)
all that said, I LIKED the story, I just hoped for something a little more.
Not a writer, a writer wannabe, editor, lit maj, or pretend literary critic. Just an avid reader/listener. My ratings are opinion only.
Bought for a road trip with my 12 year old niece. I feel very silly, but I liked the 2 we listened to in the series. They were cute and sweet great tween books that aren't full of sex or violence. I was not bored or annoyed to listen.
